The National Party has released parts of a recording of convicted drug smuggler Karel Sroubek which it says proves he threatened his estranged wife and forced her to write a letter supporting his residency bid.
In the phone call between Sroubek and his wife, Sroubek appears audibly frustrated that she has submitted a character reference to his lawyer without showing him first.
“Seriously do you want me to do something stupid? Do you want me to send somebody to talk to you? Because you are doing crazy stuff,” Sroubek says on the recording.
Wow Iain Lees-Galloway sure has great judgement doesn’t he. Who would have thought a convicted drug dealer and gang associate would also threaten people.
